This is the field of engineering that deals with the exploration, extraction and production of oil. It also increasingly deals with the production of natural gas. A petroleum engineer determines the most efficient way to drill for and extract oil and natural gas at a particular well.
Students will gain full knowledge of the following;
- Evaluation of oil and gas reservoirs to determine their profitability
- Examination of the geology of future drilling sites to plan for the safest and most efficient method of drilling and recovering oil.
- Management of the installation, maintenance and operation of equipment
- Monitoring of yields and development of modifications and simulation programs to enhance it
Our Petroleum Engineering course gives you a broad range of knowledge of all the phases involved in exploration and exploitation of oil and gas reservoirs.
